Throughout the spring and summer from now until the end of August buy 2 inner tubes and get the 3rd half price.
Through March there’s 20% off everything in the shop, this includes servicing parts, so you can get your bike ready for better weather at a better price!
This will also apply to bike services booked in March but not carried out in March, in case you can’t make it in during March to have your bike serviced for instance.
Just mention the deal when you come to pay for whatever it is you want.
The deal excludes items already on sale, and excludes service labour.
Convert your own beloved bike with a new ‘Swytch’ conversion kit. Swytch have designed this from scratch and have miniaturized the front hub motor – its about half the size and weight of a regular electric motor hub.
So when you remove the battery pack from the handlebars,your bike is ‘Swytched’ back to riding and feeling like your regular bike!
The kit includes a front wheel and handlebar battery pack with the controls in. It even has a light! This normally costs £550, but I can match the pre-order price Swytch has them for which is £350, and best of all I have them in stock! (You have to wait a number of weeks if you order from Swytch)
I’ve got just the one Garmin 25 for 85:00 (was 139:00) and the Garmin 20 for 75:00 (was 109:00) on the shelf. Nice little computers! The new Garmin 130 is here too and it can be price matched online too.
I have 3 Ex-display Elite turbo tainers for sale in the shop. They have been assembled and used in the shop very infrequently for people to try out, so they are essentially as new apart from light scuffs on their supporting legs. Pictures of the trainers below

Elite Qubo digital Smart B+ – Now 250:00
Elite Volano Smart B+ – Now 285:00

There are 2 superb ex-hire Ebikes for sale, their main plus points are excellent motors and they fit a wide range of heights.
The first bike, pictured below, is a Bristol Bikes S’Park, in a medium large size. Its Unisex so suits both men and women. With disc brakes it stops quickly, and the brake pads last an age compared to rim brakes, plus your not going to wear your wheel rims out braking – really important on a heavy Ebike!
Its on sale for 1150:00. Its been used for 6 weeks and has less than 100 miles on the clock.
The S’Park got an amazing review from Ebiketips – read it here
The second bike, pictured below, is an Adventure road sport ladies Ebike. Its a really lovely bike in an eye catching blue colour. Its biggest plus point is it has a Shimano Steps Ebike motor system, one of the 2 market leading systems (the other is Bosch). Its range is also a big plus, 60 miles on one charge (hills, wind and weight dependent of course!)
Its on sale for 1550, the RRP is 2250 so its a bargain, and its done less than 250 miles. Its a medium but again like the first bike fits a wide range of riders, from short to tall.
Here is a link to the Adventure website with a bit more information about the bike

A crazy August offer, great quality Continental tyres fitted for free, with a free new inner tube installed at the same time! The tyres are superb quality the top of the range Contact Plus @34.95 for hybrids / touring bikes / cyclocross commuters, or the Grand Prix GT folding tyre @34.95 for ultimate bombproof riding with grippy Black Chilli rubber in a light and fast tyre.
I have been using an Elite turbo trainer for 18 months now, and it really is a great way to keep cycling in the colder weather,
You can follow a training plan to get faster, or fitter or stronger or all 3! In the summer its also really useful if you just want a brief 30 minute spin if you’ve had a busy day.
Turbo training has become massively less boring due to the emergence of lots of training apps, like Trainerroad, Sufferfest or Zwift. They make training really fun, or rather they make pedalling nowhere have an actual purpose!
I have 3 Elite turbo trainers set up in the shop, with an ipad and you can try the different training apps. The trainer below is winning all the praise, its called the DIreto. It’s said to be one of the best trainers for its pricepoint, beating some of those around the £1000. Its currently £675.00
DC Rainmaker did a review of the Direto and its pretty amazing
The Qubo at £280.00 is well worth a look and road.cc did a great review of it.
The Volano at £350.00 is a budget direct drive trainer, again road.cc did a review of the model, without the ‘smart’ sensor, but they really liked it. The one in the shop comes with a smart sensor that connects to your ipad, tablet or PC.
A whole new range of DT Swiss road wheels have come in for 2018, and one of the new features is that they are all tubeless tyre compatible, they work fine with normal inner tubes too. If you’ve ever had lots of punctures, or want a more supple and comfy ride then tubeless is the answer!
The special offer is that I will give you a free set of tyres (normal or tubeless) with any pair of DT Swiss wheels purchased.
Wheel highlights include the 35mm deep carbon PRC1400 wheels, pictured below. They are light enough for climbs unlike some deeper carbon rims that can feel deadened on climbs, but uniquely also offer an aero advantage.
The hub is nicely cut away to reduce weight. The rounded rim is more aero than a sharp or blunt profile, and the wide 25mm rim perfectly hugs 25mm tyres adding to its aero profile.
Another highlight is the OXIC ceramic wheelset. This is an aluminium rim that has been dipped in electrolyte and a high charge plasma current passed through it creating a ceramic coating on the rim. The advantages are a rim that never wears and massively superior braking. The stealthy all black looks cool too, the braking surface remains black forever. They also weigh a featherweight 1450g
The hubs on the PR1600 rim and disc brake versions are a real work of art. The hub internals are based on the DT 350s hub which has their legendary star ratchet freehub which is virtually maintenance free.
